    Treasure Hunting in the United States

    You may have heard of the Crater of Diamonds State Park in Arkansas. It apparently is a plowed field where tourists are allowed to scour for precious gems to take home. Just this summer a boy scout visiting with his family found over a 5 carat light brown diamond. I would be curious if anyone has ever been there or know of other "treasure" hunting spots for tourists in the United States?

    I have not heard of the Crater of Diamonds but several places here in the mountains of NC offer mining to tourists. You get to sift through the water and use the same tools that miners years ago used to mine for precious stones. It is really just a tourist type thing and most places offer you a bag of dirt for X amount of dollars and then you pour that bag of dirt into the water and sift through it. Neat for little kids but really just a touristy type thing to do. They do sell stones that they have on hand and I had a ring created several years ago at one place.

    Thanks Shellyann36. I am particularly interested in knowing about the Crater of Diamonds because it has been in the news several times for large finds. I was wondering if it was just advertising, but I have heard about it independently so many times, I think there may be something more than a tourist trap.

    That would be fun to go through and certainly it does impact things in a very positive way which is the way how it works and for sure it brings out the best for the uses we carry trip to niagara falls from nj is one of those stories which would be a lot of fun to be around and it has all the values which can be kept pretty decent.
